Wedding Reviews

Dear Jan and Anchorage Team, Just a few words to thank you for another beautiful, Anchorage, dining experience on Saturday evening. Feedback from my guests has been very complimentary. As in my previous Anchorage experiences, the quality of the meal was further enhanced by the Anchorage's meticulous ambience, high level of personal service, and of course, the 'to-die-for-view' over the Williamstown/Melbourne seascape. Congratulations Jan and Team for providing Williamstown with such a beautiful, classy (yet affordable) restaurant. I'll be back! - Marcia

We celebrated our wedding on the 3rd January 2015 at the Anchorage and it was absolutely wonderful. The pre-preparation with Jan was first class and the organisation on the day without fault. The food was delicious and the staff attentive. Although our day was accompanied by 41 degree heat and gale force winds it didn't affect the enjoyment of our day thanks to top work from Jan and her team. We highly recommend this wonderful restauraunt for whatever your event. - Monique J

Great venue. So much character. We had a stand up event for 100 guests and they all had such a wonderful time and everyone loved the venue. We could even see fireworks in the city across the water! Wonderful views during both the day and night. Jan was so organized and managed the venue well without being obtrusive. The food was fantastic and there was so much of it! Nobody went hungry! The waiter were fantastic and even learnt some of the guests names which gave a personal touch. My groom was even provided with a plate of his favourite canapes just for himself, and he has not stopped mentioning how great this was! We highly recommend this venue for any occasion. - M.P.
